Multivariate Hawkes processes: an application to financial data

  • Paul Embrechts (a1), Thomas Liniger (a2) and Lu Lin (a2)
Abstract

A Hawkes process is also known under the name of a self-exciting point process and has numerous applications throughout science and engineering. We derive the statistical estimation (maximum likelihood estimation) and goodness-of-fit (mainly graphical) for multivariate Hawkes processes with possibly dependent marks. As an application, we analyze two data sets from finance.
